I Did Not Bribe Ogun CJ For My Recommendation As A Federal High Court Judge – Adebutu-Obasanjo


A former wife of Olujonwo Obasanjo, Mrs. Temitope Adebutu-Obasanjo, has denied claims that she bribed the Chief Judge of Ogun State, Justice Mosunmola Arinola Dipeolu.

In a personal statement, she said it was necessary to set the records straight to avoid defamation and disinformation on the matter.

The statement reads: “My attention has been drawn to a campaign of calumny against the Chief Judge of Ogun State, who was my boss and whom I will always have esteemed regards for

Ordinarily, one wouldn’t have bothered to dignify the warped imagination contained in the bulletin, but for my name, which featured and, more so, for a lie told unchallenged has the tendency to be taken far the truth.

“Ipso facto: in setting the record straight, I wish to state categorically that at no time did I give the CJ the sum quoted or any sum for that matter in exchange for my recommendation as a Federal High Court judge, and at any time for any favour.”

“My official car, which was allocated to me in 2018 after four years in the service of the Ogun State Judiciary, has been returned to the Chief Registrar, upon my voluntary resignation from the service of Ogun State Judiciary on November 9, 2023, and it was never forcefully recovered from me, as wrongly stated in the bulletin.

“As a true Christian, all the facts contained herein are presented with clear conscience and are the absolute truth.
